Globe goes Beauty And The Beast mad



Whilst the entire globe goes Beauty And The Beast mad, I decided to do a little fact-finding mission. Before the Harry Potter franchise exploded onto our shelves and screens, Emma Watson, was an unknown entity. Lets meditate and enlighten ourselves shall we?
• Despite being British, she was actually born in Paris, France.
• She auditioned eight times for the role of Hermoine Granger in the Potter films.
• She was 11 years old when the first movie Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was released in 2001. It grossed more than $974 million worldwide.
• Ms Watson could stand to make around $15 million if BATB makes $750 million globally. She has an estimated Net. Worth of over $50 million.


Just a quick update on the cinema situation… Kong and Wolverine have been shunned to the side-lines as the belle of the ball that is Beauty And The Beast takes centre stage.
The tale as old as time, released in grand fashion this weekend, generating astonishing $170 million (and $350 million globally).



As summer is fast approaching its time to start booking our concert tour tickets and summer festival packages.

There is nothing I like better than going to see my favourite superstar in their element, a packed stadium, doing what they do best. Rocking out to thousands of adoring fans.

Global tours are a pricey business; for starters the venue hire isn’t cheap, combined with insurance costs and transportation. Lets just say, these megastars aren’t taking the local bus!

I have been living in Benidorm for the last ten years, having tried my hand at many things from karaoke host to radio presenter I finally found my true place in this wonderful and diverse seaside town! I currently manage a fabulous bar in the Old Town, called Sensations, and guest DJ at People’s Night Club. On top of that, I am very proud to be a part of the committee that are responsible for Benidorm Pride, taking charge of the entertainment and staging of this wicked event!
